Our monthly new mom classes are fun and informative for new parents.  Dr. Edwards will cover what will happen in the hospital after your baby is born, and the first few weeks of life at home with your newborn.  It's a great way to meet our practice as well!  Our next upcoming dates are April 22, May 27, June 24, July 22, and August 26.  Call today to sign up, since space is limited.
